Hey strangers, long time, no see. Good to see a few names still the same... About a year ago my DSLR died and other things have been higher priority than replacing it. The problem is, technology has moved on and it hasn't moved in a direction I like. I have been using superzoom lenses since the film days (Tamron 28-300 followed by a Sony 18-250). I started in the Minolta ecosystem and have evolved to Sony, my last body being an Alpha 55. The problem is, that generation was the last to use the A mount. The mirrorless systems that have followed do not offer a Superzoom option. So, the question is, where do I go from here? The obvious choice is a Sony Alpha 77 from the same generation as my old body which will continue to use my 18-250 lens, and gives me more resolution, better video etc. I would still be buying a used body that is at least 10 years old. Alternatively, I could switch to a different brand that has a newer body still compatible with superzoom lenses, but that would require buying both body and lens. Anymore, I mostly shoot video for my YouTube channel, but I also miss the ability to shoot stills occasionally. Switching back and forth between lenses is not something I want to do again. Absolute top end budget would be $1500, would prefer to spend maybe a third of that.
